Hello friends it's time for a new challenge over at
I started out by inking and blending my card panel with various shades
of blue Distress ink with an ocean / sea theme in mind. Once blended
I painted perfect pearls on top of the distress inks then using a Spellbinders
sea shells embossing folder to create the metallic textured look.
The sentiment, from Clearly Besotted: Dandelion Dreams, is heat-embossed
and to finish I've added some mini pearls and sequins for added sparkle.
It's an 'Anything Goes' week over at Simon Says Stamp so I can't
resist popping across with another entry for their gallery.
.... AND because my inks were on my desk I decided to go with another embossed look!
This time using vellum and heat-embossing.
To begin with I've stamped the florals and leaves from a set by
Uniko: Pure Florals - Chrysanthemums using Versamark ink before
heat-embossing with clear embossing powder. Using blue shades again
I've inked and blended the distress inks over the vellum.
To hide the adhesive I've wrapped my vellum panel around some light-weight
white cardstock then adhered that to the card. The sentiment is from the same
Uniko set and is heat-embossed in WOW Metallic silver sparkle.
To finish a few more sparkly gems, strips of glitter and navy cardstock and a
corner crop to the bottom right corner of the card.
Here's our photo inspiration and I hope you find a little crafty time
to play along with us.
